I got my slim mean machine back
Resource usage, average load etc, is back to normal and at about the same level using GL as in original mode.
Thanks!

Re: OpenCPN Beta Build 2.6.1210

Hi Dave
2.6.1210 builds from source with one fix. nmea.cpp line 85: gpsd_data should be a pointer.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Build 2.6.1210

ChuckSK....

Confused. The declaration in line 85 is a global static instance of a gpsd_data structure, added to support the latest GPSD 2.96 API.
Notice in line 543, I take its address to pass as a parameter to a function.

I guess maybe it should have been a class member for better encapsulation, but global static should work too.

Are you getting a compile error? Runtime error?

Thanks
Dave

Re: OpenCPN Beta Build 2.6.1210

ChuckSK....

Aha...Windows...

Fix:
Wrap the offending line 85 with:

Code:
#ifdef BUILD_WITH_LIBGPS
...
#endif
We don't support libgps under Windows....

Thanks for the Q/A
Dave

Hi,

is it possible to extract the specific diff for that? I need to backport it to the Debian 2.5.0 package and am no git guru.

aka did you modify Brendan's flyspray patch at all?


thanks,
Hamish

Re: OpenCPN Beta Build 2.6.1210

Testers,
the windows build for beta 1210 is now available for download. The RPMs will follow later today.

@dave: while hovering the mouse over the chart bar in OpenGL mode, the info window is rendered, but disappears after a very short period of time. with GL off, the behavior is OK.
FS#604 still shows the same behavior as 2.5.0.

There is a gpsd problem using Ubuntu 11.10
Quote:
~ $ gpsd -V
gpsd: 2.95 (revision 2011-07-27T11:32:38)
Quote:
~ $ ps aux | grep gpsd
nobody 2869 0.0 0.0 35912 1280 ? S<s 10:18 0:00 /usr/sbin/gpsd -F /var/run/gpsd.sock -P /var/run/gpsd.pid
When starting the program I now have this dialog

and the gps via gpsd is not working, but xgps works.

No problem to run the gps directly via /dev/ttyUSB1 (with gpsd killed).

Could not reproduce with Vista in OpenGL mode.

(With parallel install) the following CM93 objects will not stay ticked on relaunch.

I can't reproduce Nohals problem either.
But there is a problem with the vector objects. I have similar but not exactly the same scenario.
On repeated restarts lg_vsp is the last ticked object and then only _texto follows, that refuses to take a tick.
Initially there were a few more objects after lg_vsp, that were not ticked, but they disappeared on restart.

Re: OpenCPN Beta Build 2.6.1210

The last 3 check boxes in Mariner's Standard will not stay ticked when OCPN is started.
When Open GL is used there are some text in the cm93 chart that is odd, when uncheck the GL box it is ok. Running W7 sp1.

Confirmed latest Vista. The culprit is the text displayed with 'Show light description'

With the classical rendering, the light description text seems to be displayed twice with a few pixels offset (also/already in 2.5.0)
